Take two Jersey Shore veterans, add 20 single women and you have Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny, a dating competition series just greenlighted at MTV. Said bachelors are Paul Delvecchio and Vinny Guaagnino, stars of the original reality phenomenon and bromancers in current revival Jersey Shore Family Vacation.
Here’s how we play our game: Twenty eligible ladies will face off against one another hoping to avoid the elimination ceremony, while the boys must compete for the affection of the contestants as well. As MTV notes: Pauly D continues to tour the world as a DJ while holding down a Las Vegas residency, but are any of the contestants ready to keep up with his luxurious lifestyle? Meanwhile, Vinny is ready to get back into a relationship, but will the Staten Island keto-guido find someone to take home for Sunday family dinner?
Are our heroes ready to find their perfect match? If so, will they? Find out when Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny premieres later this year.
MTV’s original Double Shot at Love, an offshoot from A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, aired for one season in 2008–2009 and starred bisexual twins Erica and Victoria Mongeon, who searched for true love among a pool of 12 men and 12 women.
The new Double Shot at Love is produced by MTV, SallyAnn Salsano — who created Jersey Shore 10 (!) years ago — and her 495 Productions. Salsano and her company also are behind Jersey Shore Family Vacation as well as the Shore spinoffs Snooki & JWoww and The Pauly D Project, along with such other unscripted fare as MTV’s Floribama Shore, NBC’s Nashville Star and VH1’s Wedding Wars.
